Childhood Cartoons Get Scary Realistic

Dave Rapoza is a man with a talent for taking treasured memories from my childhood, and bringing them to life in such a fashion that I’m likely to have nightmares about them.

In this gallery, you’ll see his realistic interpretations of Ninja Turtles characters (but not the turtles themselves surprisingly), Thundercats and Samurai Pizza Cats and Super Meat Boy thrown in for good measure.

I’m looking forward to see what he comes up with next. Which series do you think this style would lend itself well to?

  1. There are definitely all the Turtles and more villains. He has a massive gallery at his website as well…. The only disappointing thing about this article, is I know this from your website already doing a feature on him a few months ago ,and it was a little more investigated before the article was finalized. Hell just Google his name and you’ll find the Turtles.
